It was the "Deluxe" DSS system, with dual-output LNB and I think the receiver was the RCA DRD203RW. I remember it had Wide and Low band data. Total cost of almost $1,000.
A billing error while I was traveling in 1995 changed my status to "since 1995", and I have a 6 digit account number (12xxxx).
Eventually replaced that with the first RCA model to offer Dolby Digital. Went through a few different models of RCA, and one Hughes.
In 1999 I got the RCA DTC-100 and the new 3-LNB dish to do HD programming.
Got a Philips DSR704 DirecTV/TIVO when those came out.
At some point moved to a 5-LNB dish.
DirecTV R10, R15, H20, HR20, and finally the HR22 and HR23 with a Slimline-3S (SWM) dish.
I still have every receiver and dish I ever bought.

My local cable company refused to have the monthly pay per views for WWE. They would only carry the "big four". I had heard about directv for a while and went into a SAMs club where I saw a do it yourself kit with a GE receiver. I think it was around $149 or so. I bought 2 and installed it myself. I hated the days when it seemed like every receiver you bought had to come with a new dish. I had so darn many of them!
Went HD with a Mitsubishi HD receiver in 2001 when there was only HD Theatre and HDNet and never looked back.
Cable isn't offered in my town. Neither is an alternative from the phone company. Even if it was I would never turn my back on Directv. They just keep improving.
HD since 2001

In 2003 DirecTV gave me 2 DirecTIVo's and a free Samsung HD receiver to win me over. Then a reduced price 10-250 HD TIVO and then upgraded me to the HR20, HR21, HR24 and i am going on one year with a HR 34.
I have enjoyed my DirecTV experience and the information provided by DBSTalk and don't plan on going anywhere anytime soon.
